Hi everyone,

My main guitar is a Yamaha Pacifica 812v, (Translucent Dark Red just so you know).

I have been toying with the idea of getting a new (used) guitar, mainly a telecaster of some description. I am never going to get rid of my Pacifica as, personally, I have gotten used to it over the years and think that it ticks most of the boxes.

My latest idea is to change the bridge humbucker, the stock one is a Seymour Duncan JB which I think by all means is a good pickup, but to me it doesn't feel right. Feels a tad quieter and not as crystal as the single coils. I thought that rather than blowing my money on a whole guitar I could spend some money on the perfect pick up for me.

I like to jam blues, funk, classic rock and all of the parts in between, the humbucker needs to be able to split and the sound I really want would be a Les Paul style humbucker and a Telecaster sound when split.

Anyone out there with any suggestions or thoughts?

Much appreciated!!

the jb should be way louder/hotter than the single coils. it'll be warmer, though, not as glassy.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

+1 The JB is a pretty hot pickup
